The all-new, next-generation 2018 Volkswagen Polo will make its world premiere in June, the company has confirmed this week.

Confirming an early 2018 launch for Australia, the company’s local communications chief Paul Pottinger told CarAdvice today we can expect a “quantum change” for the new model.

“It’s probably the biggest intergenerational change we’ve seen in the Volkswagen range for some time,” Pottinger said.

“Built on MQB (the Volkswagen Group’s new versatile architecture), it’s substantially bigger, a huge leap forward,” he added.

The new Polo has been spied testing a number of times in the past year, and while the finer styling details remain well disguised, it is clear the new hatch will be longer, lower and wider than the current model.

Most details are being kept quiet until June, although Pottinger confirmed we can expect a similar model spread to the current line-up. That will mean Trendline and Comfortline trims, along with the hero GTI model.
